Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Maisie thinks Kayla is perfect. Kayla is pretty and thin, has cool clothes, gets great grades, and she's a star on the soccer field. But is she happy? The more time Maisie spends with Kayla, the more she wonders if there's really any such thing as perfect.

In her latest book for kids, acclaimed speaker and child advocate Trudy Ludwig explores the relentless and destructive drive for perfection that is impacting even younger children, and the freedom that comes from accepting one's self.

"With Too Perfect, Trudy Ludwig has hit the mark on the pitfalls of perfectionism--and shows children and their parents that we are all 'perfect' just the way we are." --Jill Zimmerman Rutledge, M.S.W., LCSW, author of Picture Perfect: What You Need to Feel Better About Your Body

"Too Perfect sets the stage for meaningful discussions about being yourself and working to your potential, not to perfection. In our extremely competitive society, I highly recommend this book for kids and parents!" --Barbara Z. Carlson, cofounder of Putting Family First and coauthor of Putting Family First: Successful Strategies for Reclaiming Family Life in a Hurry-up World
